From contemporary learning spaces to innovative teaching to technology integration… TechCon 2014 is your chance to experience the future of learning!
Here is a preview of all you will experience…
The Future of Learning Environments — Space is often said to be the third teacher, along with parents and peers. With that in mind, what are the opportunities to rethink and reshape the role that space has in the process of learning? How can current spaces be rethought and designed to provide a contemporary learning experience? How does technology influence and support the design? Join us for an engaging conversation that focuses on the opportunity and the possibilities for creating compelling locations for learning.
